2 Corinthians

2 Corinthians

Dear Daily Devotion

Happy Easter!

I hope you enjoyed both this morning’s service from Downing Place URC in Cambridge, have found the Holy Week services useful and have enjoyed the Stations of the Cross reflections based on Fr Sieger Koeder’s art over the last two weeks.  

We continue with our journey through Paul’s letters to the Corinthian Church spending the next few weeks in what we know as 2 Corinthians.  Newer subscribers can find the reflections on 1 Corinthians by going to devotions.urc.org.uk

Whilst scholars are clear that Paul wrote the letter there is a view that it’s a compilation of at least two letters which later editors merged into one due to the change of tone between chapter 7 and 8.  The situation in the church was still complicated, Paul asserts his apostleship and clearly sees that he’s been attacked.  We know that church conflicts can be messy and those in leadership often take the brunt of the pain.  The letter encourages us that even when we get it wrong we’re in good company!

with every good wish

Andy
